#22: Make 10 New Recipes

Salmon Burgers with Cilantro Mayo
Source Annie's Eats

1/2c red bell pepper diced (I used one whole pepper so a little more)
6 tbsp. panko bread crumbs
1 garlic clove, minced
1lb. salmon fillets, skinned, boned and finely chopped (wild Alaskan is best!)
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
1 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. salt
1-2 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil (I used EVOO)

For the cilantro mayo:
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2c mayo
1/2c cilantro
dash of cayenne pepper
squeeze of lemon juice

For serving:
burger buns
green lettuce
sliced red onion
sliced tomatoes

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the diced bell pepper, panko, garlic, and salmon. In a small bowl combine the egg white, soy sauce, lemon juice, and salt. Add the liquid mixture to the bowl with the salmon and toss gently until well incorporated. Form the mixture into four equal sized patties.

To make the cilantro mayo, combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Process until well combined and smooth.

Lightly coat a grill pan or skillet with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Cook the patties about 5 minutes per side, until cooked throughout.

Place the burgers on the buns, spreading one side of the bun with cilantro mayo. Top as desired with lettuce, onion, and tomato.

I forgot to get cilantro, but I had some dill. So I made dill mayo instead.

I toasted the burger buns and that was a nice touch.

I used the wrong type of spatula at first and two of the patties fell apart a little. But once I figured it out I got 2 nicely made patties.

Delicious. We both loved this meal and it will definitely be made again and again.

Some of the comments made by the Hubs: "Best meal I ever made. He could eat this every week. He would go to a restaurant and love to have this meal." I must say that made me feel pretty good. This recipe is very easy to make and these are ingredients we have in the house anyway, so definitely a go to for us.

I tried to take pictures, but I need to work on that skill.
